ABRT-AUTO-REPORTIN(1) ABRT Manual ABRT-AUTO-REPORTIN(1)

NAME abrt-auto-reporting - Get or modify the auto reporting option values

SYNOPSIS abrt-auto-reporting [-v] [ enabled | yes | 1 | on | disabled | no | 0 | off ] [ [--anonymous] | [--username USERNAME [--password PASSWORD] ] | [--certificate SOURCE] ]

DESCRIPTION Reads the configuration from abrt.conf and saves the changes to the same file.

The changes will take effect immediately without necessity to restart any ABRT process and will be persistent.

disabled User have to report the detect problems manually

enabled ABRT uploads an uReport which was generated for a detected problem immediately after the detection phase.

Reads and saves the authentication configuration options in /etc/libreport/plugins/ureport.conf and /etc/libreport/plugins/rhtsupport.conf

uReport description ABRT supports uReports for four types of crashes: crashes of C/C++ programs that result in a core dump, uncaught Python exceptions, uncaught Java exceptions and kernel oopses.

Each uReport generally contains a stack trace, or multiple stack traces in the case of multi-threaded C/C++ and Java programs. The stack trace only describes the call stack of the program at the time of the crash and does not contain contents of any variables.

Every uReport also contains identification of the operating system, versions of the RPM packages involved in the crash, and whether the program ran under a root user.

There are also items specific to each crash type:

C/C++ crashes these are path to the executable and signal delivered to the program,

Python exceptions there is the type of the exception (without the error message, which may contain sensitive data),

for kernel oopses these are list of loaded kernel modules, list of taint flags, and full text of the kernel oops.

The authenticated uReports also contains hostname and machineid to enable a server side filtering at https://access.redhat.com/.

The authenticated uReports have the benefit of rich server replies which may include a solution for the submitted crash. The authentication is done using either Red Hat Subscription Certificates or Red Hat Customer Portal credentials.

Warning: The full text of a kernel oops might contain information like the identification of the host hardware type. You should disable the autoreporting feature if you do not want to share this information with Red Hat.

OPTIONS -v, --verbose Be more verbose. Can be given multiple times.

-a, --anonymous Turns the authentication off by clearing both SSLClientAuth and HTTPAuth configuration options in /etc/libreport/plugins/ureport.conf

-u, --username USERNAME Turns HTTP Authentication on by setting HTTPAuth configuration option to rhts-credentials in /etc/libreport/plugins/ureport.conf and storing USERNAME and PASSWORD in /etc/libreport/plugins/rhtsupport.conf Also turns the SSL Client Authentication off, because these methods cannot be used together.

-p, --password PASSWORD Password for HTTP Authentication. If not provided, a prompt asking for it will be issued.

-c, --certificate SOURCE Turns SSL Client Authentication on by setting SSLClientAuth configuration option to SOURCE in /etc/libreport/plugins/ureport.conf. Also turns the HTTP Authentication off, because these methods cannot be used together.
